A spiritual comment and prayer to begin the day with Juanita Francis, Youth Pastor at Ruach City Church, London.

Good morning.

I was driving around downtown L.A. and I saw this statue of a huge chair and being the tourist that I am I wanted to take a picture. Now in my faith I’m used to hearing God speak to me and I heard him say this; "Is this seat taken?!"

Naturally I laughed because I was thinking God was being funny! My reply was "it's not my chair so I guess you can, I don't mind!" Of course this question was actually rhetorical! Sometimes we can allow God to take the driver’s seat in some areas of our lives but not all.

I usually like to plan and have things in place but with this trip I had lots of moments where I had to go with the flow and trust in God’s plans. As God began challenging me, I realised I really wanted to share the seat with God! Sounds funny right? All God wants is for us to surrender EVERY part of our life to Him! The Gospel of Matthew says, "And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it."

God spoke to me through this passage; the first thing we can realise is that an angel helped to roll back the stone, and that was for Jesus. So I realised whatever in your life you find to be a tomb, that thing, that holds dead things, he has the power to roll it away and sit on it!

But the key is to let Him have a seat! It's easy to want to be in control but truth is if we were truly in charge our lives, it would be a mess. So I finish with what He said to me and challenge you, “Is this seat taken?"

Let’s pray. Dear God help me to let You take the seat in my life.
Remind me that You know my end from by beginning.

Amen
